I have an original Cabinet Card photograph of “Grace and Mildred Potts”, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Joliet (Will Co.) IL and Grace looks about 7-8, while Mildred is about age 1, and the photo was taken about 1901.
I found the girls in Ancestry’s WorldConnect, and learned that Grace Mary Potts was born 19 Jun 1893 and married James S. McCulloch.Mildred Elizabeth Potts was born 7 Jul 1900 and married Lyle E. Shoger. Their parents were Albert Potts (born 7 Jun 1868) and Clara Belle Cooney (born 12 Mar 1873, according to “Families of DuPage, Grundy, Kendall and Will Counties in Northeastern Illinois”.In 1900 & 1910 census, Albert and Clara and girls lived in Oswego (Kendall Co.) IL. The McCullochs and the Shogers lived in Kendall Co., IL in 1920 census.
